    Does anyone know if Talking Footy is returning to the 7 Network in 2016?

    What are you on about? I think you'll find that 'The Blowtorch' and 'Say That Again' are the most brutal, hard hitting, rating smashing segments on TV...

    I actually like it more than Classified coz they tend to talk about footy rather than the sexy/scandalous/peripheral stuff around it.

    That being said, man they say some stupid things. Carey declares if you make the 8 you can win a flag, no more than 5 mins later says Richmond might make finals but will just be making up the numbers with no chance of getting anywhere near a flag. Then they spend a good 2 minutes discussing whether Pendlebury's comments about non-performing players being dropped would cause dissention in the playing list (general consesus was yes) - **** me drunk are you serious? The captain of a professional footy club daring to publicy let slip that blokes not adhering to the game plan might get dropped, wowee yep real bombshell stuff likely to affect the playing group there :rolleyes:

    My favourite part is the captions at the start:

    Tim Watson - 3 x Premiership player
    Wayne Carey - 7 x All Australian

    and then...

    Luke Darcy - Leigh Mathews Trophy winner. WAHEY!

    Its actually not a bad show. Alot more actual footy discussion than Classified. I look forward to it but funnily enough I used to hate it.

    "Monday's Experts"

    should have kept that as the theme at the time, although the other one was good also.

    I am finding it difficult to stomach "Swoop" McClure.

    Maybe he's just nervous, maybe he's a preening cock, but he takes himself way too seriously, states the bleeding obvious as though it's new insight, and wears a suit thats 2 sizes too small.

    Chill the **** out, guy.

    PS: The guy they had on last year was equally horrible.

    I don't mind it but 360 and OTC are on at the same time and I'd rather watch those.

    On The Couch is the best of the football shows on at the moment. Good game and tactics analysis. Although all the members on the panel each have some annoying quirks they all have a good understanding of the game and Gerard Healy is a good host

    Last year they had Mark Stevens on and he can be a bit of a knob. When he asks questions at the post match coach's conference he is always shown asking the question because of course everyone gives a **** and wants to see him deliver the lines. I think it's actually "Scoop" (as in he get's the big scoops - BOOM!) McClure. Any of the true journos will come across as a bit uncomfortable when surrounded by that much testosterone. McClure does work for 3AW and comes across better on radio when you don't have to look at him. He looks about 12 years old.

    Even on radio McLure has a habit of making big announcements about pretty mundane stories. Takes himself very very seriously.

    McClure is basically Jimmy Olsen (from Superman) in a suit.

    Jimmy Olsen was played in the original Superman movie by an actor named, get this, Marc McClure.

    Mark Stevens, that's right! He is a self-important tosser.
    Scoop (boom, indeed) seems to following the same path.

    They should use a journo who brings insights, not rumour and headlines.
    Then again, they are basically just cross-promoting their sports-newsdesk, aren't they?

    I actually don't mind the rumours and big stories being discussed with a journo present as it can have the effect of calming "the boys" down. I listen to a number of different podcasts and as an example Barret and Clark on The Rub often focus and reign in the bullshit that can pervade the studio sometimes. They can also bring far more insight from the actual fact they have never played he game at the top level; and are therefore not bound by some asshat code that frown on certain subjects. But yeah, your right about the cross promotion, often the "big" story on Talking Fotty is a 1 or 2 day old story from the weekend that has been analysed to death already - often they are just adding some detail to the event.

    "That's right Darce the big news from the weekend was Swan's broken foot and I can now reveal he's had the scan and has left the Doctor's carrying an X-Ray in a white envelope." Woot woot!

    Yeah!, or "One of our reporters has followed Luke Hodge back to his car and will now ask him a stupid question. Exclusive "no comment" answer coming your way after the break"
